Oscar Winner for Best Actress (Frances McDormand) and Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell)!
It takes a lot these days to have your breath taken away by a film’s audacious honesty and humor, but that’s THREE BILLBOARDS’ jaw-dropping brilliance—along with perhaps the defining role of Oscar winner Frances McDormand’s career, in the new film from Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). Strong, brave, fed up with bullshit, and desperate for justice, Mildred Hayes might be 2017’s Woman of the Year. After months have passed without an arrest in her daughter’s murder, Mildred (McDormand) makes a bold move, postering three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell)—an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence—gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement escalates. THREE BILLBOARDS is “a film so rich with narrative fluidity, profane laughs, standout performances and complex character studies that its tremendous emotional hits—often arriving when you least expect them—might just leave you agog” —The Film Stage. Rated R. 115 minutes.
